What our guests are saying about our Toulouse sightseeing tours

Toulouse Day Trip Highlights

Wander through the charming cobblestone streets of Toulouse, mixing a bit of culinary history with interesting stories about the city.

Discover the training, talent, and high-quality ingredients that go into the exceptional products created by award-winning pastry chefs and chocolatiers.

Explore the process of turning cacao beans into chocolate and taste what the ``big deal`` is about single-origin chocolates.

Sip on some of the best hot chocolate in Toulouse (we switch this for ice cream when it's hot!), then later on, linger over our last pastry stop with a beverage of your choice.

Sample both classic desserts and new innovations, and uncover the basic components and building blocks of all French pastry.

Continue your own sweet adventures with a list of everything we tried, the locations visited, and any other resources mentioned!

Toulouse chocolate & pastry tour details

Tours operate rain or shine. We will be walking at least 2 km along beautiful – but uneven – cobblestone streets. Most of the tour is spent walking or standing, as not all of the locations that we visit allow for seating. Please contact me directly regarding accessibility issues, as not all stops are wheelchair accessible.


Meeting location

We’ll meet very close to one of the major landmarks in the city center, easily accessible by metro. Exact location and detailed directions will be emailed along with your ticket confirmation.

The Taster-in-Chief


Jessica is a former cheesemonger, certified French Wine Scholar, and blueberry girl forever. Having grown up on a farm, Jessica is obsessed with the concept of “terroir” (a taste of place). She founded Taste of Toulouse in 2018 to help other English-speakers fall in love with her adopted hometown like she has – through the food, wine, and the passionate local businesses that she met along the way. Read more about her journey here. When she’s not on tour Jessica can be found trying new restaurants around the city or cuddling at home with her cats, Cheddar and Camembert.

The Writer-Chef


Ally trained at UK’s renowned Leith’s School of Food and Wine and previously worked as a pastry chef and chef de cuisine. When she’s not wow-ing guests on tour with her expertise, sly sense of humor, and ability to put everyone at ease, Ally is a food writer, photographer, and cookbook editor. You can find out more about what she’s up to on her blog Nigella Eats Everything or subscribe to her Substack newsletter “From France, With Love” for recipes, restaurant reviews, and tales from the tour guide trenches.

Good to Know

What's included

All food and drink samples provided on the tour. We will be eating a lot of sweet things, so consider only having a light lunch/snack to balance out the sugar intake. Please note that the above descriptions are subject to change based on seasonal availability and the changing food scene in Toulouse (i.e. hot chocolate will be switched out for something equally delicious in the summertime).

What's not included

Additional food and drink that you wish to purchase yourself.


In order to keep the tour moving, we discourage shopping during the tour – especially with larger groups. However, you’ll receive an email after the tour with a list of all of the locations visited and what we tasted at each so that you can return later to continue your “research.”

What to wear or bring

We will be walking at least 2 km along cobblestone streets, so comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing is a must. Please dress appropriately (and bring an umbrella if necessary) to make sure you enjoy your time on the tour. We may sit down from time to time, but be prepared to spend most of the tour standing or walking. Again, comfortable clothing and shoes is a must.

To reduce environmental waste, we don’t distribute plastic water bottles, so if you would like water during the tour, please bring a reusable water bottle with you. Some of the locations may provide water, but it is not guaranteed at all stops.

Dietary restrictions/food allergies

This tour is vegetarian and non-alcoholic. We are also happy to accommodate the following diets with advance notice:

  • Gluten-free (Those with Celiac disease are advised to contact us ahead of time to discuss how we can keep you safe)
  • Nut allergies (except in cases where cross-contamination is a serious concern)

Any of the above dietary requirements MUST be noted when booking to allow time to make arrangements for substitutions. We ask that those with dietary restrictions book tours at least 24 hours in advance so we can be properly prepared to welcome you. If you are vegan, please contact us in advance of booking to discuss your options. If you have any questions regarding dietary accommodations or would like to see if we can accommodate other restrictions or food allergies (we often can – please ask!), email me directly at [email protected] before booking.

COVID Health & Safety

Please review your order and the tour details carefully before booking. Tickets are refundable or exchangeable until 24 hours prior to the start time of the tour. We are happy to give you a refund, reschedule your reservation for another date (pending availability), convert your booking to a voucher for later use, or reassign your tickets to another person with at least 24 hours notice. Any changes MUST be communicated in writing to [email protected].

Alternate tour dates/times

Tickets for the small groups tours go on sale 3 months in advance to allow time to confirm upcoming availability.


Interested in taking the Chocolate & Pastry tour on a different day and/or time? Contact us for availability and pricing. We’re very often able to add additional dates according to interest.

Bookings for 1 person

Unfortunately, due to the dramatically higher cost of providing a solo tour, we require a minimum of 2 people to run a tour. If you are trying to purchase a single ticket without success, we most likely don’t yet have any other reservations for that tour date. If that is the case, you can do the following:

  • Purchase 2 tickets to ensure that the tour runs. During the booking process, you’ll be asked for participant names. Write “single booking” in the space for the 2nd participant. If we receive more bookings for that date, we’ll automatically refund you for the second ticket.
  • Wait until closer to the date of the tour to see if we get other reservations before booking your ticket. If there are no bookings for a specific tour date, we close the bookings 18 hours in advance.
  • Contact us with your date of interest and we’ll let you know if anyone else has expressed interest in that date or if there may be alternative dates on either side that you could join.
